COMMENTS

This essentially searches for blocks of n consecutive primes of the form A023204 (see also A089530) with a minimum of the primes in the block set by the previous entry in the sequence. - R. J. Mathar, Jun 02 2011

Any further terms are > 10^13. - Lucas A. Brown, Mar 17 2024

EXAMPLE

For n=1, 2 is prime and 2*2+3=7 is prime so a(1)=2.

For n=2, 5,7 are consecutive primes 2*5+3 and 2*7+3 are primes so a(2)=5 as 5 is the least such prime > 2.

For n=3, 13,17,19 are consecutive primes 2*13+3, 2*17+3, 2*19+3 are primes so a(3)=13 as 13 is the least such prime > 5.
